Drivers should expect delays today and for the rest of the week as Boulder crews complete a number of emergency pothole repairs.

The repair work is expected to last at least a week, city officials announced in a news release on Friday. Crews will fill potholes on two streets at a time to expedite the repair process. Transportation Maintenance Manager Scott Schlecht noted in the news release that centralizing the repairs this week will allow the city to“tackle a much higher number of potholes more quickly.”

The need for pothole repairs has been uniquely high this year. While just 550 pothole repair requests were received in all of 2021, the city has received 591 in 2022 thus far.

Streets with a high level of traffic impact include 28th Street between Jay and Baseline Roads and Valmont Road between Folsom and 55th Streets. Streets with more than three lanes will be reduced to one lane to ensure worker safety. Work hours on the repairs will last from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until the construction is completed.
